New WILCOX Simple Battery Pack ARC v.2 for ANVIS Night Vision Goggles
Now being offered for sale is the New WILCOX Simple Battery Pack (SBP) Version 2 shown above, for use with Ops Core FAST and ACH Accessory Rail Connector (ARC) during ANVIS Ground Operations. The newest version of the SBP-ARC eliminates the plastic lanyard used to keep the battery cap with the SBP. It has been replaced with a Stainless Steel 7 x 7 strand cable that is crimped using Zinc Coated Copper Crimps. This improvement doesn’t increase the cost, but it does increase the SBP’s ruggedness and longevity providing even more value to our Customers.

While previous ANVIS have been powered by battery packs design for flight operations, the new WILCOX SBPv2 was designed for ground operations such as those seen in Law Enforcement Tactical and Military Combat environments. It is a very rugged device that uses one type 123 battery such as those used in tactical flashlights. The LEMO connector inserts and locks into all type of flight and ground ANVIS helmet mounts.

The WILCOX SBPv2 is mounted to the FAST or ACH Accessory Rail Connector and connected to the ANVIS SOCOM helmet mount shown here... can be attached to the ARC Rails in these configurations:

The WILCOX Simple Battery Pack (Patent Pending) has features unique to previous products making it a much better product for ANVIS Ground Operations. These features are depicted below:

For our Customers who do not use the Ops Core ARC Rails, we also have a new Velcro version using the aggressive 3M Dual Lock Velcro patch that is bolted onto the SBP. This patch can be cut with scissors if you need to change its shape or just reduce its size. This 3M product can be used with any other type of Velcro loops product such as used to hold the ANVIS Low Profile Battery Pack on to helmets.

If you need the Velcro Version, please send me a message stating so after winning this auction.
